I thought it would be cool to start a thread talking about minor, or major, things we tend to notice on a daily basis and commenting on them.

For example, ever notice how pretty much all of TV during the day is consist of nothing but old shows and court shows?

Thats because most people who are home during the work day are either stay at home parents or retirees.
 
I like when I have a day off and WeTV is showing a Roseanne marathon. I'll take old 80's and some 90's sitcoms over the crap that's on today.
 
Ever notice that commercials are 3x louder than the show?

I notice that too, everytime a commercial comes on it seems like I have to turn down the volume just for that.
 
There was actually a law passed recently in the US to make commercials turn down the volume. (They've definitely been abusing the volume for years, deliberately.) Not sure when it goes into effect.
 
Abusing the volume... that would make a great song title.
 
People only drink tomato juice on airplanes.
 
Speaking of commercials, ever notice just how stupid infomercials try to imply we are?
 
Anyone ever notice that extra who's in every movie/show known to man? (I made a thread about him years ago, lol)

No. For he is the Highlander.
 
ever notice how handing someone something in a small brown paper bag is just always going to look suspicious?

I'm blaming him for the destruction of the Spider-Man trilogy :o

Or some rich kid from the future who thought it would be funny go back in time to put himself in old movies and make his friends a do a scavenger hunt of all 100 shows/movies.
 
Ever notice how the space between the E and the X on an EXIT sign looks exactly like a sideways house?
 
Ever notice how it's only in poverty stricken countries that people see apparitions of the Virgin Mary? You never see stuff like this happen to people in Beverly Hills for example.
 
Ever notice that lately the sound of voices/dialogue in movies is quieter than sound effects and music? It annoys the hell out of me. I turn it up so I can hear what they're saying, then as soon as an action scene starts I have to lower it because it's too damn loud.

Less people are at home to watch TV during the day, thus those shows make less money off of advertising, so networks want to spend as little money as possible for daytime TV. That's why it's all talk shows, court shows, reruns of old shows, and why soap operas have tiny budgets compared to prime time shows.

Most networks air everything at the same volume; it's just that commercials are sound-balanced differently. Think about a stereo or media program's equalizer; you can keep the volume the same, but it'll sound louder or quieter once you start playing around with the levels.


Kinda regretting not finishing that broadcasting degree...

When I saw The Dark Knight Rises in theatres, there were a couple of scenes where I missed whole chunks of dialogue because the music kept swelling up.
